Probable pitchers

Rays: RH Tyler Glasnow (5-1, 4.08 regular season; 2-2, 6.08 postseason) is coming off a rough outing in Tuesday’s opener, allowing six runs over 4-1/3 innings with a career-high-tying six walks though only three hits. A 30-pitch fourth was his undoing, and allowing four stolen bases didn’t help, either. Rays have lost his last two starts, as he allowed 10 runs in 10-1/3 innings, after winning his previous 11. Has a career postseason mark of 2-4, 6.46.

Dodgers: LH Clayton Kershaw (6-2, 2.16; 3-1, 2.88) was dazzling in Tuesday’s Series opener, allowing one run over six innings, striking out eight and walking just one. Improved his career Series record to 2-2, 4.68 in six outings and his overall postseason mark to 12-12, 4.22 in 36 games. That after a so-so start against the Braves in NLCS Game 4, an outing pushed back two days due to back spasms, in which he allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings.
